3/31/11—Getting Cracking

Today's Draw: The Ace of Swords from the Steampunk Tarot. Is there something it's high time you got crackin' on? Or a new way of seeing things that you've come across? What is catching the attention of your mind or causing conflict in your brain?
The aces in tarot signify an upsurge of energy in one area or another. In the suit of swords, that upsurge comes in the mental realm, the home of critical thinking. So the ace signifies new ideas. And new ideas are either sparked by—or lead... to—conflicts in the mind.

This particular ace shows an arm holding a riding crop high, ready to use. They seem to be about to move away from some dark, ghostly image in the background...perhaps a shadow of themselves? Maybe an old way of being? What is it for you?

This has significance for me in many ways. I committed myself to a personal, top-secret tarot project that I think has a lot of potential, but I need to figure it all out. So that's me getting crackin' on something fresh and new. And I also have a friend who's become important to me that is making me think a bit differently about a number of things. And overall I think I'm in one of my periods of change and adjustment.

I once read something about "campers" vs. "climbers". Campers are people who feel comfortable where they are, have planted roots and aren't changing. Climbers are constantly on the go, challenging their ideas and their status quo. In the mental realm, I'm a climber all the way...constantly evolving. But in life as a whole, I like to camp for a spell, then do some intense climbing, then camp for a spell. I need those times of respite, where others may not. The problem is, momentum usually keeps me in that state far too long. Right now, there's so much energy behind some of the things coming my way that I have no choice but to start climbing again. Which is exactly what I need because I've been camping too long. It's just taking me some time to adjust to the new status quo. So what about you?
